Ars Technica details new PS3 SKU and price cut

  • Posted September 10th, 2007 at 13:33 EDT by

The PlayStation 3 is currently selling admirably for its relatively high price point across North America; however, there have been many questions as to what Sony may employ to boost sales of the machine during upcoming holiday season.

Ars Technica details the following from an anonymous source concerning several upcoming SKUs and price reductions for the PS3:


- 80GB PlayStation 3: $499.99
- 40GB PlayStation 3: $399.99
- Spider-Man 3 Blu-ray movie pack in with one, or both
- PlayStation 2: $99.99

The 80GB price drop isn't a huge surprise, but a new $400 40GB system is quite shocking. But the question now arrives: would people sacrifice 40GB to save $100? We at PSU feel the answer is an unequivocal yes.

A $400 PlayStation 3 option would not only solidify Sony’s position during the Christmas period, but for the future as well with a variety of flexible options for consumers.

Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
